An all Stainless or Stainless Elite version of the P225A1 9mm and a 9mm P225A1 Match Elite Stainless w/ 5" barrel. If only one then I'll take the Match Elite version.

Since I'm on a 229 kick lately....

P229 9x19
HD - XR's
E2 grips
X5 undercut
front strap checkering
SRT
standard 1913 rail
All black Nitron.

I actually own something close to this, minus the X5 undercut and 1913 rail on a standard 229R LE model.

I love the 229 Legion, minus the beaver tail, I would prefer none.

Let's keep it within the scope of currently available features. No design changes beyond parts mix and match.

I'd build a 226 real close to Legion specs with steel internals, Trijicon HD XRs, and a Barsto gunsmith fit barrel. I might consider even building a short extractor slide to set it apart from the Legion. Of course, it would have the OpSpec logo on the slide.

You?


229 Legion in .357 Sig, but I wouldnt build it. I'd give it to Bruce Grey to do whatever he liked, and I'd add Trijicon HD's with orange front.

P229 .357 from mid 90's, with a Robert Burke trigger job.



Wyatt, maybe he ought to check his knife too. I heard he cut that man in Texas from his belly to his dick.

Is something like this possible with off the shelf parts?

Either a long slide 229 or a 226 with a frame cut to accept 228 or 229 magazines?



Just a quick pic of a 226 slide on a 228 frame to show the basic idea.

I also would like an all stainless P228. However, I would like the slide to be a shortened older P226 stainless slide because it would have the short extractor and full-height cocking serrations. While we're at it I guess I would like to use a shortened P226 stainless frame with no rail because I prefer the feel of the P226 grip over the P229-1 one.

I guess what I want would essentially be a P226 SL that was cut down to P228 dimensions. Am I allowed to do that to build my gun? Smile

You smooth-talkin' devil. I want aluminum framed versions and a 4.4" as well.

I would build Sigs version of a P30 compact with a Sig TDA action. 12-15 round capacity. Standard P30 slide and barrel would be fine with me. And no finger grooves. HK45c grip and grip angle with better texture. Something similar to the P320 texture.

Railess, all-Stainless DA/SA P220 Carry with a legion-like beaver tail & undercut trigger guard in 38 Super. Sort of like a hopped-up original P225 that's all stainless.

I'm actually quite content with my P225A1, I think has pretty much has all the features I would have wanted in a single stack alloy framed DA/SA pistol. Between the G-10 grips, the checkered front strap, and the classic style slide it is exactly what I would have asked for.

I have wanted this gun for a few years:

Basically an old style P220 X5 Tactical

5" barrel P220
Nitron finish
Fixed tritium night sights
DA/SA
SRT trigger
Beaver tail frame
Matt black anodized aluminum grips

I would also consider a P227 setup the same way.

Mine would be an all stainless 226, pretty much a stock Stainless Elite. I was so close to pulling the trigger on one in May..

All Stainless steel 226 with...

-Legion style frame
-Drop in GG Trigger
-F/O front black rear sights.

And purely for looks...
-Black slide
-Matte frame
-front cocking serrations

And for giggles...
-reduced legion beaver tail (it's too damn wide)
-flared magwell Or welded on addition
-standard 226 grips with E2 texture


Supper DREAMY...
-5 Inch slide, cause bigger is better
-adjustable rear sight, cause moving side to side is awesome.



BOOM!

Big heavy and awesome. What do I win?

One other thought. It would really, really be nice to see more Nitroned STs - 220s, 226s, Match variants, heck, I'd even love to have a Nitroned 225A1ST. I don't mean two-tones either (although they're certainly popular), but rather pistols with Nitroned slides and Nitroned steel frames.

I want basically the exact same thing as a P220 Stainless Match Elite, but in a P226.

All Stainless slide and frame. 5in slide/barrel. The adjustable sights, beaver tail, maybe some type of simple mag well.

In 2 versions, SAO and DA/SA.

They already made them:
The X5 Allround and the X5 L1, if you want no rail.
The X5E Allround and the X5E Classic, if you want rail.

NO, they did not! The X5 was nowhere near the simple classic 226. Get rid of the adjustable trigger, the dadburn proprietary adjustable sights, the absolutely warped design motifs, the "target pistol from the 'custom' shop" prices, and the oversized beavertail that doesn't do much of anything useful, and THEN you're talking. Throw in DA/SA lockwork and a fixed rear sight and you're on track.

The 220 was good enough for SIG to simply offer a 5" version, and then a fairly simple 5" ST version. Why not the 226? Screw the bling and the pointless "value added" features!
